I wanted to send out a blurb about one of the ESS-related trips this coming
The Greenland Exploration Seminar takes place the 7th to 28th of August,
2008 of course, and will be led by Michelle Koutnik and Gerard Roe. These
two are experts in their fields--glaciology, climatology, meterology,
etc--and are all-around people who I would love to go to Greenland with.
The idea of the trip is to learn a bit about the Greenland Ice Sheet, and
what's going on with changes in the ice sheet and sea ice. There also is a
focus on the native culture of Greenland--almost 60,000 people live along
Mind you, I went to Greenland last summer to work on the ice, and so will
vouch for the beauty of the coast (and the ice, but that's a personal
thing...). Don't believe the whole "Iceland is green and Greenland is ice"
garbage. Both are icy and green, but Greenland is bigger (and better).
Anyhow, please do consider this trip as an option for anyone and everyone.
I know that many of those who traveled to the Canary Islands last summer for
an Exploration Seminar got scholarships from the ESS department. Sure, these
seminars may be a bit costly, but when else will you have the opportunity to
go to Greenland!?
If you'd like more info on the seminar, go to:
And if you'd like more insight into why Greenland is awesome, shoot me an
Rock on and Greenland ho!
